Basically this would be easy if I already had a job because I'd go out and easily buy nice clothes, but I have an interview tomorrow and I have 70euro to buy an interview attire, so I'm thinking what could I go with?
I'm looking at stuff in H&M and Topman to make my outfit. I have black shoes already. I was thinking a white shirt, skinny tie and black trousers, just keep it simple. Do I really need a jacket/blazer?
Oh its a part time convenience/sells alcohol and stuff store.

If it's for an off licence/convenience store then you don't really need to dress up for it. Wear a shirt, fold the sleeves if you want. The worst thing you can do in an off licence/convenience store interview is look uncomfortable, like you don't wanna be there. Regardless of the reputation such stores recieve, it's a very enjoyable job if you get regular customers you like. One of the biggest skills that you'll develop is socialising so you wanna look like the sort of guy who enjoys company but is serious about the job. Don't wear a white shirt. There's a huge chance that there will be dust collecting up around the place. You don't really need a jacket/blazer. A cardigan wouldn't look so bad.
My parents own an off-licence and we don't really care what our workers wear, so long as they look presentable. (I used to serve people whilst wearing my pajamas!) However, in saying that, it really does depend on the store and the person interviewing you. If you get the job and they seem like nice people, try asking for a raise because they'll be raking it in if they sell alcohol!
